Dear Centennial Park Lovers,
I love to cross-country ski. I do. I completely relate to the frustration of having people trample all over freshly groomed trails, thus having one ski aimlessly veer off in its own direction. However, I also very much enjoy wandering among the snow covered trees (in boots or snowshoes) with my lovely dog so that we can both get some exercise. Centennial park only offers ski trails and prohibits any other form of winter adventuring besides cross country skiing at this juncture. There are no trails into which you may venture to snow shoe, hike or walk your dog. This petition is not intended to be contentious, only to gauge whether there are others like myself who very much wish to have one trail dedicated to a variety of winter adventuring, such as walking, snowshoeing, and dog-walking (on leash, of course). The park should be accessible to all park goers in the winter and in the summer. Some people are not comfortable on skis. Some people prefer to hike or snowshoe so as to take in the splendour of winter's beauty. This petition is not asking that all trails be shared by skiers and walkers, as we must respect that trampled ski lanes does not make for pleasant skiing. This petition is asking that only one trail be dedicated to hikers, snowshoers, and dog-walkers. If you support this idea, please take the time to include your name in this petition. Thank you for taking the time to consider the objective of this petition.
